AN EASY GLUTEN-FREE & VEGAN FRENCH TOAST + THOUGHTS ON WELL-BEING DURING THESE TOUGH TIMES

 

Currently I am practicing physical distancing, working from home, and only stepping outside my house for essential items – namely food. it is definitely becoming an odd “new normal” and while I miss being able to go out to the famers markets, the beach, or a botanical garden, I know that I am keeping myself and others safe by staying home and limiting interaction.
